“The way you call into the mountains is the way the echo will sound. “ – Slovak Proverb
Uummm, what’s that body of water surrounding this country? None? Really? A landlock country… is definitely something new for our family. We had lived in a peninsula country for quite quite some time now. A little drive away from home will lead us to the Arabian Gulf. Don’t get us started on our archipelago, dearly beloved Philippines.
Back to Slovakia… little big country surrounded by countries! It’s fantastic in a different sense. Two hours away from Vienna, Austria, ta da, Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia.
It’s like exploring a different world passing through the magic closet (yeah, like Narnia.)
Churches, museum, shops and Dr. Seuss House (not really but our hostel accommodation), our two days in the country is satisfying to say the least.
Waking up in an ambiance of medieval city, we definitely had a fun time going around the city, checking out monuments and restaurants alike.
A picture says a thousand words, yes, but the conversations our family had during our family travels will be treasured by all members of the family.
As if our days in Bratislava couldn’t get any perfect… we present you, bookstores and street art!
Bratislava can easily have been a day trip from Vienna or Budapest. But hey, not for our family. There are lots of see, lots of discussion to make. It’s that Little Big Country.
